President McKinley taking the oath( Visual )

3 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: PRESIDENT McKINLEY TAKING THE OATH OF OFFICE. This picture opens by showing the Diplomatic Corps, accompanied by Admiral Dewey and General Nelson A. Miles, coming down the carpeted stone steps of the Capitol and going to their seats in front of the stand where the President speaks. Next come the members of the President's Cabinet, and they are followed closely by President McKinley, preceded by Sergeant-at-Arms Ransdell of the Senate, bare headed and one armed, and also accompanied by the joint committee of Congress, composed of Senator Mark Hanna, of Ohio; Senator Spooner, of Wisconsin; Senator James K. Jones, of Arkansas; Representatives Cannon, of Illinois; Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, and McRae, of Arkansas. The President then steps promptly to the front of the stand amid the cheers of the immense crowd who stand with heads reverently uncovered, filling the entire foreground of our picture. As the tumult ceases, Chief Justice Melville W. Fuller, in the black silk robes of his high office, steps forward and holding in his outstretched hand a small Bible, administers the oath of office. The oath taken, the President presses his lips to the Bible and with manuscript in hand, immediately begins his speech. Again the valuable and exclusive privileges granted us by the United States Government allowed us to place our camera within fifteen feet of the President when he took the oath of office. We regret that we were unable to secure a longer film than listed above, but the rain began falling in torrents with almost the first words of the President's speech, which of course prohibited our taking a greater length of film, but notwithstanding the fact that it began sprinkling before the President took the oath of office, the fifty feet of film which we did secure is good
President McKinley and escort going to the Capitol( Visual )

3 editions published in 1901 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: PRESIDENT McKINLEY AND ESCORT GOING TO THE CAPITOL. This most excellent picture was secured at the junction of Pennsylvania Avenue and Fifteenth Street. The parade is headed by a platoon of mounted police; next comes the Grand Marshal, Major- General Francis V. Green, and staff, as follows: A. Noel Blakeman, Lieut. Col. John S. Johnson, Major-General N.E. Thompson, U.S.A., Brigadier-General U.S.W. Day, U.S.V., Lieut. Winfield S. Overton, U.S.A., all mounted on splendid horses. Next come the famous Troop A, of Cleveland, Ohio, who act as the personal escort of the President. They present a most striking appearance as they go down the incline on Fifteenth Street, Washington. Next comes President McKinley in his carriage drawn by four of his own horses, the pair of blacks in the lead and the favorite bays on the wheel. The President is seated in the right of the carriage with Senator Hanna on the left beside him, and facing them, with their backs to the driver, are seated Representatives Cannon and McRae. Owing to special permits granted us by the United States Government, we were able to have our camera within twenty feet of the President's carriage when it passed, and an absolutely perfect photograph was secured. The President's carriage is followed by Secretaries Hay and Gage. The third carriage contains Secretary Root, Attorney-General Griggs and the President's Private Secretary Cortelyou. The fourth carriage contains Secretaries Long, Wilson, Hitchcock and Postmaster-General Smith. The fifth carriage contains Lieutenant-General Miles and Admiral Dewey. We also present excellent pictures of the Admiral of the Navy and the General commanding the United States Army as they pass. This picture closes up by showing a detachment of Veterans of the Twenty-third Ohio Volunteers, followed closely by the West Point Cadets, who present a remarkable spectacle as they execute left wheel turning from Fifteenth Street into Pennsylvania Avenue

5 editions published between 1904 and 1905 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title seems to have had a number of reprintings or editions. The copyright date on this one is 1904 but page 448 ends with information about "the first day of January, 1905". Paging seems to vary between reprintings, as do the number of plates. The list of illustrations does not completely correspond with the order of the plates bound into this book. A set of ten plates which seem to illustrate the last three, more recent, chapters is inserted but is not included in the list of illustrations, including "The Last Charge at Port Arthur."
